I am very impatient, too. I have an especially hard time if the scale doesn't move for several days running. I try to remind myself that there is no way that I am going to get from here to there without some of those days in between and getting through them is progress. But ugh! I am so impatient!

One thing that makes it better, though, is that it's not an all or nothing thing. Last time around I lost 40 pounds (I'm about 20 up from that now) and I felt absolutely great at about 170, where I got down to. That's nowhere near my goal (I'm 5'0"), but after you've been at 215, 170 is like heaven and I looked leaps and bounds better and clothes were already feeling more fun. It's not like you have to wait till your ultimate goal to celebrate.
